Denim is one fabric which is just never going to go out of fashion. It is so versatile and can be the perfect casual choice for a day of shopping got can be glammed up for a special night out on the town. Let's take a look at a few easy way to dress up your denim.

Choosing The Right Wash

When you are picking out a pair of jeans that you want to be able to use for occasions that require a smart-casual outfit then it is best to opt for a dark rinse. The darker denims are a little more formal than light or distressed denim. The darker colors are also more flattering as they can have a slimming effect. In the right situation, you can get away with dark denim in place of standard black pants. Deep indigo jeans teamed with a vibrant colored tank and a well cut blazer make a great work  outfit, assuming your dress code allows denim.

It's All About The Boots

In a casual setting, it is most common to pair jeans with flats or even sneakers. However, for a smarter look, especially approaching Fall, skinny jeans can be teamed with knee length boots. This is an ideal choice for a night at the movies or a more casual dinner. Alternatively, you might want to opt for boot cut jeans and a pair of great cowboy boots.

Belt Up!
The ideal accessory for denim is the belt! There are so many versatile looks that can be created with a belt. Pairing your jeans with an oversized button down shirt cinched at the waist with a chunky belt is a great way to give more definition to your waistline. This look can further be accessorized with sparkly jewelry and a scarf for a great evening look.

Denim Is Not Just About Jeans
It is  easy to forget that denim is available in forms other than jeans. Denim shirts, jackets, skirts and shorts are all popular so try mixing it up a little. Just do not forget the cardinal sin of denim – if you must wear two denim items then you need to mix the colors  and washes.

What Not To Do With Denim
While denim is indeed versatile and can be dressed up for nights on the town and semi-formal gatherings, it is also easy to go terribly wrong. Here are the top 5 don't of wearing denim!
- Avoid the muffin top by saying no to low rise jeans!
- Don't choose colored denim – that is totally 90's, for the noughties it is all about blue jeans!
- While Tie-dye is on trend, don not try it with denim it is never a good look – ever!
- Denim on denim should be avoided. If you must have a shirt and jeans then make sure you mix the colors and washes.
- Do not squeeze into jeans that are too small. Denim is unforgiving and you will create all manner of unsightly bulges so make sure they fit properly.

Denim is a staple fabric that should feature in everybody's wardrobe. However, it need not be discounted as a casually weekend trend. With the right accessories and styling your denim can be dressed up enough to make it suitable for nights out and work events.
